What They Talk About on the TV

She wanders the house
one shoulder exposed
in a sweater never meant for this weather
she checks old receipts
flipping them down one after another
coming to a realization
she’ll never share
not even when pressed
by family
or friends.

And the Greyhounds keep running
minute after minute
hour after hour
day after day
and they’ll take her far away
and she has it in her mind
she’ll never come back again.
